I'm working on a physics major but have been thinking of doing a minor in cs or maybe stats? Would either of these be beneficial or would one be more useful than the other?

Do you know what you want to do (or how these would help you)? Try talking to people in those departments, to see what the uses are.

You can't go wrong with either, but make sure to get plenty of real programming experience regardless of your choice.

Thing is that if you combine a degree in physics with a decent background in statistics and CS, you'll be perfect for data science/data analytics/applied AI, which are very in-demand in industry right now. There will also be opportunities in physics grad school too, in experimental physics/computational physics.
